The Leaders in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia is a hyperbaric oxygen therapy practice in Atlanta that began as a vision of providing non-hospital, independent hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients that would benefit from the treatments. By avoiding the additional costs that are part of the Hospital Outpatient Department setting, our patients can get comprehensive treatment for wounds and other conditions that benefit from hyperbaric therapy for less than being treated in the HOPD setting. We have been accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society since the beginning of the program in 2000, evidencing a commitment to providing the highest level of care possible. Joint Commission has a complementary agreement with UHMS, making it one of only 4 organizations who are so designated. All our centers were accredited with distinction in 2017.
Hyperbarxs + Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia
Hyperbarxs and Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia have been practicing hand in hand since 1991 as business partners. We are happy to announce that the 2 companies have officially merged. The merger ensures you will continue to receive the highest level of care and customer service without disruption. Our combined mission remains to be the leader in Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care in the Southeast.
What we are doing to keep patients safe?
Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia are taking extra steps every day to ensure the safety and well-being of both patients and staff in all of our clinics as a result of this pandemic. We utilize special ultraviolet (UV-C) lights to that are a proven and effective way to neutralize potential viruses and bacteria in our clinical spaces. Prolonged exposure to UV lights works to deactivate the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens which destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease. These UV lights are utilized daily and always activated in unoccupied spaces for a minimum of 30 minutes per room.
Treatments We Offer

Benefits of Hyperbaric Therapy
There are several benefits associated with intermittent exposure to hyperbaric doses of oxygen. Oxygen partial pressures in the blood can be elevated to 2000 mmHg at the tissue level. Either alone, or more commonly combination with other medical and surgical procedures, these mechanisms serve to enhance the healing process of treatable conditions. This treatment will cause the following:
Increases White Blood Cell Creation
Stimulates Release of Stem Cells
Improves Quality of Life in Patients
Most Conditions Covered by Insurance
Reduces Healing Time for Injured Tissues
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive medical treatment administered by delivering 100% oxygen at pressures greater than two to three times the normal atmospheric (sea level) pressure to a patient in a chamber. Hyperbaric oxygen acts as a drug, eliciting varying levels of response at different dosages. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been proven to have numerous physiologic effects including hyperoxygenation of tissues allowing oxygen delivery to tissues with decreased blood flow or low hemoglobin (oxygen carrying component of the red blood cell).
